In 1967, Isaac Jackson was one of a handful of African-Americans that integrated the Macon Georgia Public School System at Lanier High School. Soon after Isaac made his presence known as a gifted student-athlete. In 1969, on national news, the See Isaac Run Highlight Video was viewed across the country, which started an important journey for Isaac.
Although Isaac was a high school All-American football player, he faced many hardships and challenges and might have benefited from receiving additional support during his high school and college years.
“Upon reflecting on my student athlete career from childhood through college, as well as my father’s student athlete experience, I am currently creating a documentary “See Isaac Run” to preserve my father’s experience, as well as to provide an educational tool for SAC participants.” – Jamal T. Jackson, MSW
